Program Updates for 2017
Living Ecology has just announced the new structure and pricing for the 2017 permaculture program. Now, residents and international students can attend shorter times, though they still have the option to attend the full 4 month course.
What can Indian residents do with permaculture in the drylands?
In 2017, resident participants now have the option to attend single course modules of a 10 part, advanced permaculture program. Residents are still free to attend the full program, if they so choose.
What can international students do for global permaculture aid?
International students of Living Ecology’s advanced permaculture program in India can now attend courses for one, two, or four months. Each length of participation comes at it’s own flat rate.
What’s in it for everyone?
Rather than offering one certification for current PDC holders, the Living ecology program now delivers two certificates to full course participants:
- Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) from Living Ecology and Aranya Agricultural Alternatives
- Advanced Skills in Applied Permaculture Design and Rural Development Certificate
As a bonus, participants will also be helping real village farmers in the area of India, where farmer suicide rates are highest. This is the real driving force of the entire program.
Who can apply to the 2017 Permaculture Program?
Anyone with an interest in permaculture, agriculture, and/ or helping village farmers in India develop long term, self-sustaining farm projects may apply, and will be considered for the program. For the last two years, Living Ecology only allowed those with a PDC or previous agricultural experience to attend. If you resonate with this project, now is the time to jump on board and learn the true impact that one person can really make.
Living Ecology’s 2017 permaculture program has undergone some exciting changes. Indian residents now get discounted pricing, and international students can attend smaller portions of the program rather than spend an entire farming season abroad. You are welcomed to join for all or part of the program while we continue to make this a beneficial experience for everyone involved.
Apply now to make a difference with permaculture initiatives on a global scale.
